The exhibition When Monuments Revive is a part of the wider project Refreshing Memory, which engages with anti-fascist monuments and the artistic and scientific practices through which their dignity is preserved. Central to the exhibition are phenomena of the time related to the attitude to memory, the temporality of political options in a time of historical amnesia. In the art works, various approaches to the theme of monument are interwoven, particularly the poetic and meditative approach, the inscription of collective memory into public space, physical space and that of the media, and a radically critical approach. The exhibition takes up the troubled issue of the current situation in society today, of revisionism and the normalisation of fascism.

The exhibition has been produced within the context of the project Refreshing Memory of the Council of the Serbian National Minority in Zagreb and the Serbian People’s Council. The exhibition in the Nova Gallery will be on until October 16, 2019, and that in SKD Prosvjeta until October 30, 2019. The shows will be open from Tuesday to Friday between 12 noon and 8 pm, on Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm.
